1. Download binary file from here: https://github.com/SumavisionQ5/binaries...tic.tar.gz
2. Unzip drasitc folder to /home/pi/RetroPie/.
3. Edit es_systems.cfg in /etc/emulationstation/. Add the following lines:
Code:
<system>
<name>nds</name>
<fullname>NDS</fullname>
<path>/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/nds</path>
<extension>.ds .zip .DS .ZIP</extension>
<command>cd /home/pi/RetroPie/drastic; ./drastic %ROM%</command>
<platform>nds</platform>
<theme>nds</theme>
<directlaunch />
<viewmode>DEFAULT</viewmode>
<enabled>true</enabled>
<gridsize>1</gridsize>
</system>
4. Open a terminal window and run:

Code:
sudo chmod +x /home/pi/RetroPie/drastic/drastic

5. Place your DS ROMs in /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/nds/, and reboot Emulationstation.
6. After reboot, you can play your DS games.

Know issues:
1. Orange Pi One will be very slow on running DS games. because of less RAM? Orange Pi One PC seems OK.
2. Many games would crash after a few seconds. Maybe because of ES or ROPi? I don't know.

Thanks to Stevie and Shantigilbert(niabi) for teaching me on how to run drastic under Linux with SDL2.0, and thanks to Exophase for bringing us XU4 binary.
Tried this on an OrangePi PC and it does nothing.

Nothing appears in EmulationStation. Drastic will open on the Desktop, but when I tried loading a rom it just exits.

Sorry, I missed a <system> in es_systems.cfg.
Please try it again.
Still does nothing
Hmm. I think you'd better wait for the new release of RPOi.
